The beautiful city of Cape Town is South Africa's most popular city and the gateway to an excellent safari destination. Just two and a half hours from Cape Town, Inverdoorn Game Reserve is the largest game reserve and safari destination in the region.
With over 1 200 animals, Inverdoorn is the natural choice for discerning travellers seeking an authentic safari destination that places emphasis on conservation and the rehabilitation of wildlife. At such close proximity to Cape Town, the game reserve is easily accessed via well sign-posted roads that meander though dramatic mountain passes and vineyards.
Inverdoorn is the only game reserve that offers authentic, intimate encounters* with tame cheetahs. The cheetah rehabilitation centre has been central to the game reserve's success and growth over the last ten years and to date has rescued and rehabilitated 14 cheetahs. Inverdoorn is dedicated to protecting the species, which is highly endangered.
The fastest land animal on earth, the cheetah is notoriously difficult to breed in captivity; but the staff work tirelessly to create the optimal environment in which the cheetah can thrive. The cheetah sanctuary is a special addition to your safari experience and unique to Inverdoorn – and all of this merely a stone's throw away from Cape Town.
With the game thriving in the reserve, plans are afoot to release cheetah into the main reserve in the very near future. The dedicated staff and trainers will finally be rewarded when cheetahs move from the sanctuary into the game reserve – back into the wild. It will truly be an awesome sight to see the cheetah placed back in its natural home.
The cheetah sanctuary and game reserve is located in the beautiful Little Karoo. At first glance a deserted horizon, the Karoo thrives with life. A large variety of endemic species and succulents that capture the imagination with their alien shapes and evolutionary adaptations makes the Karoo worthy of closer inspection.
En route to the lodge, or back to Cape Town, are a number of secluded pit stops you can make. Enjoy a wine-tasting, marvel at ancient rock formations of the passing mountain ranges or grab a farm-fresh breakfast along the way.
Inverdoorn has thought of everything to make your safari adventure a memorable one. Luxury safari accommodation, excellent food and three-hour long morning and late-afternoon safaris – including trips to the cheetah sanctuary and one-on-one interactions with tame cheetahs.* For those staying in five-star luxury accommodation options, this experience is included. All of this can be found within an easy travelling distance from Cape Town and makes Inverdoorn the safari destination of choice.
